ABS Canoe Rental


Save 20% on the Daily Rate when you rent for 7 days or more!

Whether you’re heading into Frontenac Provincial Park or to one of the 5,000 lakes in our region, Frontenac Outfitters makes an excellent starting point for your adventure.

Our rental fleet is made of canoes that are top-of-the-line, Canadian-made canoes. A variety of designs from ~ stable and user-friendly ‘Heritage Styles’ to the latest ‘Modern Performance’ models. Give us a call, and we can set you up with the perfect canoe for your adventure!

Our canoes come complete with all your paddling gear & safety equipment, at no extra charge. While you’re here, at your request, our staff are happy to:

  • Demonstrate how to strap down your canoe(s) correctly.
  • Offer paddling advice such as how to launch your canoe & stroke techniques.
  • Explain the uses of any gear items
  • Give you tips on how to avoid damage to the canoe.
  • Provide recommendations for paddling routes, scenic views, and trip planning

Although we do all we can to set you up for a memorable time on the water, you are completely responsible for your actions and the care for our canoe(s) and gear. Please, take care and paddle safely!

Here’s what you NEED to know

Rates: Prices are per calendar day and canoe. An overnight rental counts as a two-day rental. 13% HST tax is extra, and prices are subject to change without notice.

Pick-up and Return Hours: Pick-up and drop-off times are during open store hours (9 am - 5 pm). If you want to pick up your canoe(s) rental(s) after the store is closed (5:00 pm), you must make arrangements in advance and an additional charge of $25 per hour after 5:00 pm until the boat is picked up or until the reservation is cancelled.

Payment: Cash, Debit, Visa, Master Card or e-transfer in full upon pick-up.

Security Deposit: A signed ‘open-end’ Visa or Master Card damage deposit at the time of rental.

Damages & Lost Equipment: The ‘Renter’ is charged for repairs & depreciation at our discretion. Lost, stolen, or badly damaged equipment is charged at our discretion.

Deposit Returned: When boats & gear are returned and determined to be in satisfactory condition by staff, the deposit will be returned in full. This can sometimes be delayed by a day if the boat(s) are returned after hours.

Liability Wavier: As paddling involves inherent risk, all renters over 18 years must sign a liability waiver release as ‘You’ are responsible for your safety & actions.

Reservations are always recommended, and we will require a Visa or MasterCard number & expiry date to secure your reservation.

IMPORTANT NOTES: Reservations are NOT accepted by e-mail, and we do NOT rent for whitewater.


Reservation Cancellations & Early Return Policy

  • Reservation cancellations require 3 days notice (72 hours)
  • More than 3 canoes will require 7 Days notice.
  • No refund for early returns

Without the required notification of a cancellation, it is at our discretion to take up to 50% of the rental cost (i.e. $50 x 3 canoes x 3 days = $450 – 50% = $225)
